Marinate the fish in the vinegar or lemon juice, and add the salt,

Soak the rice in some of the fish stock.
Approximately one hour before serving the rice

fry the crushed garlic cloves with the chopped

onion in the oil or butter. Add the tomato sauce and

fish, along with the marinade. Leave it to cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the rum, stock, salt and annatto. When it starts to boil

add the soaked rice with salt to taste. Cover it

and cook it on a medium head for around half an hour.

When the rice is soft, lower the heat

and summer for 15 more minutes. Serve it
